The Los Angeles Clippers are about to realize their biggest fear. DeAndre Jordan will not be returning to them.

According to ESPN’s Marc Stein, Jordan is going home. He’s close to accept it a four-year, $80 million deal from the Dallas Mavericks.

The Clippers knew the Mavericks were going to be the toughest contender going into free agency. Now, they will have to regroup and move on.

The team does not currently have a starting center, and may have to get one during a trade since they have limited cap space. They had to use their minimum cap exception to sign Paul Pierce to a three-year deal to go home.

Speaking of going home, that’s exactly what Jordan is doing. After years of playing for the Clippers, he is going back close to where he attended college at Texas A&M.

There was speculation that Jordan did not like playing third to Chris Paul and Blake Griffin. Now, there’s a chance he can be the man with the Mavericks, as Dirk Nowitzki is declining and only had a year or two left in his tank before retiring.

The Jordan news comes just hours after the team signed Wesley Matthews away from the Portland Trail Blazers. Matthews deal is also for the next four years.
